B. The Journal of Science and Law: Call for Submissions

The Journal of Science and Law is looking for submissions exploring the intersection of scientific research and legal policy. As many of today’s policy questions require an interdisciplinary approach, JSciLaw aims to unite disciplines and encourage collaboration between scientific researchers, legal scholars, and policy makers. For more information, please visit


C. Student Seeking Summer Research Position

If you are looking for student interns, please see the below email from a Neuroscience and Philosophy student at Bates College who is seeking a summer research position:

“I am currently studying Neuroscience and Philosophy at Bates College. My research interests include memories and lie detection, prediction of future criminality by using neuroimaging (fMRI and EEG), cognitive biases during decision-making, and neural correlates of Antisocial Personality Disorder/Psychopathy. I am hoping this summer to develop some skills like data analysis, conducting neuroimaging, and writing literature reviews while working in a research or lab setting. Please feel free to contact me at”
